It's hard to believe the holidays are upon us and as an antidote to all this holiday madness, we'd like to offer a way to avoid the stress of shopping at malls and big box stores this weekend. While there are plenty of reasons, year-round, to hang out in Ballard, here are a few can't-miss events happening this weekend. We hope to see you here!
1. Ballard Gives Black Friday. A bevy of Ballard businesses are donating a portion or all of their sales to nonprofits of their choosing as a way to give back on friday. Velouria will be participating by donating 10% of our sales to Dress for Success. Come by, support a great cause, and enjoy some treats for a mellow Black Friday experience!
2. Small Business Saturday. From photo-ops with santa, to a tree-lighting replete with hot chocolate and holiday music, Ballard's Small Business Saturday will be full of all the holiday cheer you need! Stop by your favorite shops to get warm between events.
3. Farmer's Market Sunday. We know. This happens every Sunday. All year long. But it's still our favorite farmer's market in the city. And don't you need to get an autumnal floral arrangement to add to your dining table's gourd tableau? We thought so.
5. Cyber Monday. Technically, you don't have to be in Ballard for this one, but we thought it was worth mentioning for you far-away fans. Shop Velouria on Cyber Monday and receive free domestic shipping and 15% off all orders with code "VisforVirtual."
P.S We've also updated our holiday hours and will be featuring drink specials from different Ballard restaurants on our Late Night Thursdays.
